    Good stuff. I only wish they would make smaller packages for cheaper price. I’ve never been able to use all of it within it’s 6 moth life in the freezer. So have to throw away and buy a new one.

    I keep this around in my freezer for making dry cured Sopressata and have never been disappointed. Have used it up to a year with great results.

    This product worked excellent!

  7. Bruno (verified owner)

    I haven’t finished the final product yet, but first use would indicate it seems to work. The color change is good. The temp and humidity are easy to manage given the 20C/90% environment. It is an easy product to use.

    Fresh and packaged well. I use this for my cured italian salumis

    Great stuff, just the thing for larger cured salami and summer sausage.

  12. Clifford Jones (verified owner)

    Wish there were smaller packages or a longer freezer life, but used some to ferment some UMAI soppressata and it’s beautiful… now if it cures well!

    Always a pleasure dealing with The Sausage Maker as the product line is second to none and the information available is worth its weight in gold. My only gripe albeit a small one is that if I’m going to order I usually weight for times when the shipping is free only because the shipping rates you offer are quite high. You’re located in NY I’m located in NY and to pay almost $17.00 for shipping and handling for an order that amounts to $24.00 is just a bit much!

    I was planning some salami and was anxious to get started – The Sausage Maker came through and made it possible for me to have some very enjoyable time off. Will be ordering some new knives soon as well!

    Excellent product but quite expensive and short shelf life. I have found a substitute product for the future that is 1/3 the price and is usable for years.

    As this product needs to be chilled and frozen to preserve it I was a little concerned.. but no worries. Got here in 3days from ordering. Using it to make salami with umai casings. Cannot wait to see how my first attempt comes out

    SM always supplies the absolute best and freshest cultures. Don’t overlook the age limitations on cultures if you want them to work well. Also, browse their offerings. You will find something you ‘need’.

  50. Michael Schiavone (verified owner)

    Product itself is good, however it is expensive and has a very limited shelf live. As I only make 20 lbs. of sausage a year, it would be nice if it was sold in smaller package as I use very little of it.

    Also, they should provide tracking information for priority mail customers so they can track delivery of their orders. After several days I had to call only to find out it was delayed due to weather. This changed my plans which have to be coordinated with other people as well as ordering the meat from my butcher.

    I used a new package of Bactoferm and was treated to the best taste and beautiful mahogany color that I have seen. I have been making salami for about four years now and learned A valuable lesson. DON’T USE OLD INGREDIENTS! It won”t happen again. Thank you Sausage Maker. The salami casings from Umai are the best thing going too.No muss,no fuss!
